Introduced  by  Sen.  YOUNG  -- read twice and ordered printed, and when
  printed to be committed to the Committee on Cultural Affairs, Tourism,
  Parks and Recreation

AN ACT to establish a study committee on the housing aspect  of  tourism
  in  the  state  of  New  York; and to amend chapter 225 of the laws of
  2010, amending the multiple dwelling law and the  administrative  code
  of  the  city  of  New  York relating to clarifying certain provisions
  relating to occupancy of class A multiple dwellings,  in  relation  to
  postponing the effective date thereof

  THE  PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section 1. The legislature finds and declares that tourism,  including
tourism  in  the  city of New York, is a vital and important part of the
economy of the state of New York creating thousand of jobs and producing
needed tax revenues both in sales  tax  receipts,  occupancy  taxes  and
income tax revenue. It further finds and declares that an important part
of  the  tourism  industry  in  the city of New York have been rooms and
affordable housing accommodations made available in mixed use  buildings
serving  as  an  alternative  to higher end, more expensive hotels which
some tourists, such as students, simply cannot afford. Furthermore,  the
legislature  also finds and declares that unless alternative, affordable
rooms and affordable housing accommodations  remain  available,  tourism
will  decline,  jobs will be lost and the state during a perilous fiscal
condition will lose revenue and jobs. The legislature finds and declares
that it is important to avoid any change in the current choice of accom-
modations available to visitors of our state until there is  a  thorough
economic  impact study undertaken regarding the role of affordable tour-
ism units and the negative effect that the elimination  of  these  units
could  have  on the economy of the state of New York and the city of New
York.

 EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                      [ ] is old law to be omitted.
